Let your voice be heard! Tell us what needs to be addressed and prioritized to make DC a more livable city for all ages. Join friends and neighbors at a series of Community Consultations that will be held across the city to talk in small groups about policies and priorities for the next Age-Friendly DC Strategic Plan. Volunteer facilitators will lead discussions covering 12 overarching topic areas: Outdoor Spaces and Buildings Transportation Housing Social Participation Respect and Social Inclusion Civic Participation and Employment Communication and Information Community Support and Health Services Emergency Preparedness and Resilience Elder Abuse, Neglect, Fraud, and Other Legal Issues Food Security Caregiving Large Consultation sessions are actively being arranged across the city between February and April and will be listed here when dates and times are solified, so check back often for updates to this page. Note that you do not need to bring the eventbrite ticket to the event. We use this RSVP mechanism purely to get a more accurate number on anticipated attendance. Scheduled Consultations: Thursday, February 9, 2-4pm, Northeast Public Library, 330 7th St. NE (Capitol Hill Village) Wednesday, February 15, 1-3pm, Friendship Terrace, 4201 Butterworth Place NW (Seabury) Sunday, February 26, 12:30-2:30pm, Fourth Street Friendship Seventh-day Adventist Church, 1611 4th St. NW Thursday, March 2, 6-9pm (dinner provided), Israel Baptist Church, 1251 Saratoga Ave. NE Saturday, March 4, 10am-12pm, MLK Library, 901 G St. NW (DDS/ Project Action) Wednesday, March 8, 1-3pm, Department of For Hired Vehicles, 2235 Shannon Place SE, Suite 3001 (DDS) Sunday, March 26, 12:30-2:30pm, Fourth Street Friendship Seventh-day Adventist Church, 1611 4th St. NW We also invite those who are interested in doing so, to arrange their own Community Consultation. This can be done through any group or organization you are a part of, or simply by gathering a number of friends and neighbors together and going through the Consultation process. The ideal number of people to have in any one small group discussion is between 5-8 as one person will have to facilitate the discussion and one person will have to take notes of what is said. Consultations that are larger than this should plan to break into multiple small groups with facilitators and notetakers in each. If you are interested in hosting a Consultation and have not gone through our Community Consultation facilitator training, please email email@example.com or call 202-727-2736.
